It is hard to know what your baby will like best. We use several and they all have different strengths.
There are the aden + anais swaddle blankets, the miracle blanket, and the swaddleme. There are more but those are the 3 we have stuck with.
The a+a ones are great for everything, not just swaddling. The miracle blanket is great for babies who break out of swaddles. I resisted it at first because it seemed mean but it works great. The swaddleme is fast and easy, and pretty cheap. HTH!
Sweet Sadie Mae:miracle blanket. Maybe 3-5
This! The Miracle blanket was a life saver for us. Our very strong DD had an overactive startle reflex and would get out of everything other than the miracle blanket. We survived with only 2, but I do think I would recommend getting at least 3-4.
This, although we didn't get this many. Also, now that we're weaning LO from the swaddle, it's easier to do a one-am swaddle with the Halo sleep sack. Another plus of the miracle blanket is that you can swaddle with legs out, if LO is sleeping in something that requires a harness that buckles.
I HATED the miracle blanket. Too much fabric and a PITA in my opinion. Aden &Anais are great lightweight ones, you can use them as a quick cover for nursing too. DS uses his as lovies now. We prefered the Halo sleep sacks in the early no-sleep-for-anyone days. They are so much easier than the miracle blanket. We swaddled DS with his arms out and these worked great.
ETA: you'll want at least 3, but the more the merrier IMO
We used the A+A boutique blankets from about 0-3 mod (dd was on the small side though) then switched to the swaddlemes. I had a halo sleep sack and didn't really like it. There was too much fabric for me to deal with and dd always broke out of them. After dd started rolling we transitioned to the A+A sleepsacks and are still using them.
I'd say it depends on how often you want to do laundry. I would have one for each night between washes. 3 minimum but 5ish was better for me.
Miracle blanket. Everything else pales in comparison (I adore my A&A blankets, but not for swaddling).
We only had 1, and got by fine, but I didn't have a super pukey baby.
I loved the woombie!! Just zip them up and you can even just unzip the bottom so you can do a diaper change.
Both my kids broke out of every.single.swaddle but they loved the woombie.
